Okay, I got a shock this week. I workout all the time (weightlifting, bike riding, yoga) and I felt I ate pretty good. I had a health screening this week and what a surprise. The numbers were getting close to borderline for triglycerides, total cholesterol and my glucose too. At first, I was mad at myself because this has never happened before, how could it? My friends and family kept saying "but you workout all the time and eat well, how could that be." Then I started researching the causes of these numbers increasing and I am guilty of several bad habits. The scary thing is if I never went for this check-up, how would I have known. It makes me wonder how many of us "feel" we do everything right but never go for a check-up. Please do this for yourself. Then make changes. After sharing this with several people, a couple have shown interest in working on their health with me. We are all concerned about the quality of the food we ingest. I am looking for a online holistic nutrition program to further my research.
